Family Law Attorneys may only identify themselves as 'certified specialists' if they have been certified by the State Bar of California's Board of Legal Specialization, an organization whose certification program has been accredited by the State Bar. Attorneys can only apply for specialist certification if they have been in practice for at least five years and have dedicated at least 25% of their practice to family law. To become a Certified Family Law Specialist, lawyers must demonstrate a high level of experience in their field. The applicant must pass a full day 'mini-bar' examination and have conducted a specific amount of trials, hearings, settlements, stipulations and mediations. Certified Family Law Specialists must complete over 45 hours of continuing legal education over a three year period covering specific areas of family law and must be favorably evaluation by other attorneys and/or judges familiar with their work. The process provides potential clients assurance that they have hired an expert who is experienced and educated in all areas of family law. By selecting a CFLS, consumers are assured their attorney is well qualified and trained.
